There are many ways that we are different. For example, I always wear v-neck shirts and Karen always wears round neck shirts. Karen loves lattes from Starbucks and I don't even know how to order one. I use John Frieda Brilliant Brunette hair products and she uses John Frieda Sheer Blonde products.
And in many ways we are similar. We both react to almost everything with laughter, even sad stuff. In fact, sometimes situations come up and we can't even look at each other because we will crack up. This isn't a good thing when Karen is doing a closing argument or when we are at a funeral. We are both capable of having conflicting emotions at the same time. When we're done crying and laughing, we always hurry and ask what the life lesson is. In the last few days, we've had many life lessons:
1. When your sister tells you your tire looks weird, believe her.
2. Expect Mercury in Retrograde to cause havoc at least 2 weeks before it starts.
3. Tivo Starting Over before you run to Trader Joe's because you probably won't be back in time even though you've got plenty of time.
4. If it doesn't say Reese's peanut butter cup, it is probably gross.
5. Being in denial works.
6. If you want something, you have to ask for it.
7. Even when you ask for things, don't expect to get them.
8. Men are idiots.
9. Sometimes the people you least expect to be supportive end up being the most supportive.
10. Make lots of friends who are jobless, have no obligations, and a full tank of gas so when your car breaks down, there's always someone to get you. [remember when we were all in college and picking up friends when their cars broke down was an every day occurrence?]
